Give us a brief summary of your experience?

Tradeweb is broken up into three divisions: Dealerweb, Tradeweb Institutional, and Tradeweb Direct. I joined Dealerweb which handles the wholesale side of business and acts as an inter-dealer broker (IDB) to primary banks like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, etc. Fintech is a growing industry that is changing the way banks are doing business, and only the surface has been touched so far!

How did this experience impact you academically?

As an economics student, a major point of discussion is markets and how efficient markets are currently. As students we are curious to see how our education is being applied in the real world. Interning at Tradeweb provided me with the opportunity to see how technology is changing the fixed income market the potential for growth in this industry.

"Interning at Tradeweb has shown me the opportunities and also the cool new technologies in the industry in real time."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

Coming in as a freshmen I knew I wanted to do work in finance, but I had no idea specifically where. Interning at Tradeweb has shown me the opportunities and also the cool new technologies in the industry in real time.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

The best part of being in the College of the Liberal Arts is how open-minded and accepting all the faculty are to new educational or enrichment opportunities. Everyone here at Penn State wants to make sure you are taken care of and feel like you are a part of our community.
